2016 is only two days away and a New Year means a fresh start, clean of all discrepancies and misfortunes of 2015. Many people like to cram in as many things into the end of the year and put it all behind them, like over eating before the “new year diet” begins, or taking all of your Christmas decorations down. It is natural to want to start the new year with a clean slate.shutterstock_192028574

Getting a MicroPeel is like creating a new slate for your face. Taking away all the dirt and buildup dead skin from 2015 will allow your face to glow in a new way for a new year.

What is a MicroPeel?

A MicroPeel is a type of chemical peel that can restore skin on your face, chest and hands. A chemical solution is applied to the outer layers of the skin, destroying any uneven discoloration and removing dead skin cells that take away from your natural glow. MicroPeels only penetrate the outer layers of skin, unlike other chemical peels that take away deeply rooted flaws. It combines microdermabrasion and a light chemical peel for a quick clearing of your pores.

How Does a MicroPeel Work?

The first step in a MicroPeel is a microdermabrasion treatment. This is a painless process using a crystalised blade that literally scrapes away the dead skin cells and unwanted hairs leaving your skin completely exposed and clear. The gentle exfoliation creates the perfect slate for a MicroPeel to gently seep into your skin and take away your surface flaws.

The area needing a MicroPeel treatment is lightly covered with a glycolic acid solution that goes beneath the surface causing a quick burning sensation. This causes the top layer of skin to shed over the next few days, leaving you with a brand new face with even tones and a natural glow.

What are the Benefits of a MicroPeel?

MicroPeel patients will have little to no visible peeling after the treatment. Once the dead skin cells have completely shed, a MicroPeel treatment will expose an undamaged layer of skin. Hyperpigmentation and small wrinkles will vanish, large pores will be minimal or disappear completely, and sun spots will be reduced.

How Long is the MicroPeel Recovery Period?

Unlike other, more intense, chemical peels, a MicroPeel will heal almost instantly. There are no restrictions to when make-up can be reapplied. You can leave the office after a MicroPeel and head to your next engagement with little to no unwanted redness or blotches on your face.
